Dear Families, 

If you haven't heard about it yet, or if you haven't yet gotten your child to begin their fundraising for our ONLY fundraiser of the year - now's the time!! We could really use your help in this endeavor as with only 20 days left to fundraise, we are currently at $11,275 of our $25,000 goal!

Please know, the money raised goes directly back to the teachers and students in some manner as follows: 

  • to support Teacher Grants - teachers have an opportunity to apply for classroom grants two times per year!
  • to support our Renaissance program - students who maintain high academics each quarter are given treats for their hard work
  • to support a monthly teacher coffee cart - our teachers provides coffee and sweet treats right to their classroom door! 
  • to support our Teacher Appreciation Week activities 
  • to support our Student Events - each grade level has a special event such as the Glow Party 
  • To support our 8th Grade Promotion activities 

PLEASE consider helping us reach our goal of $25,000 by signing up your student on:
